    About this property

    Spacious Cottage Overlooking Bass Harbor With Sweeping Front Lawn

    Historic vacation home with fitness center and outdoor tennis court
    This historic home in the center of Bass Harbor village on Mount Desert Island offers authentic cottage living at a fraction of Bar Harbor prices. The home has a front house, Harbor View Cottage (this listing), and a back house, Bass Harbor Hideaway (vrbo #351747), that are both available for summer rentals. Harbor View Cottage overlooks Bass Harbor, a scenic marina filled with lobster boats. The Cottage offers a view of the harbor from its lawn and living room, including spectacular Maine sunsets. The cottage is spacious, sunlit and comfortable--a quiet, elegant outpost from which to enjoy all that Mt. Desert Island and Acadia have to offer. The rental features: • Three bedrooms: One with two twin beds, a second with two twin beds, and a third with a king-size bed. One full bath on the second floor, and an additional shower in the finished attic. • Living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen (full-size appliances) • Linens and towels are all included. • WIFI, cable TV, washer/dryer and charcoal grill are provided. • 1 mile from Bass Harbor Head Light. • 12-minute drive to Acadia National Park. • 10-minute drive to shops & restaurants of Southwest Harbor. • Minutes to Echo Lake, hiking trails, swimming, boating, golf, fishing. • Free island shuttle to Bar Harbor and other points of interest. Shuttle stops every hour on the hour. Got a Large Group? We occasionally are able to offer 4 additional twin beds in the finished attic, which also has a shower and bathroom. (There is a fee of $15 per person, per night for groups of more than 6 people to help cover additional costs.) Please ask us if you're interested. And don't forget that the back house, Bass Harbor Hideaway (vrbo #351747), sleeps up to 6 people. Keywords: Acadia, island, view, harbor view cottage, Mt.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great house and great services

      The power was out earlier on the day of our arrival. The owner and handyman stayed in touch with us and made sure we had water and extra blankets if needed. Fortunately, the power came back before our arrival and we had a great time in the house and enjoying Bar Harbor tremendously.

      4/5 Good

        Nice rental and location. There is an issue with the light in the bathroom, constant flickering.

        Nice rental. The shower needs a light installed.

        5/5 Excellent

          Excellent house near the harbor

          Great location near the pier, comfortable house and an unexpected deer sighting on the lawn outside made this stay amazing. Will definitely book again when returning to acadia.

              Relaxing and spectacular location!

              This was the perfect spot for our two families. What better way to start your day than to sit in the living room watching the lobster boats leave the harbor? So peaceful. So tranquil. A perfect jumping off point for our trip. And Bobbie is super responsive and helpful with suggestions. We loved it!
